The NBA All-Star weekend is finally upon us, and with it arrives a plethora of highly anticipated basketball sneaker releases.

Nike and Jordan Brand kicked off the All-Star sneaker releases earlier this week with the “Blue Chill” Air Jordan 1 and “Floral” Nike Air Foamposite One, among others, but there’s still much more in store ahead of Sunday’s 2019 All-Star Game.

Scroll down for a rundown of exactly what is to come in the next couple of days as the NBA’s stars descend upon Charlotte, North Carolina.


Under Armour Curry 6 “Coy Fish”

Release Date: February 15

Retail Price: $130

With the All-Star festivities taking place in Steph Curry’s home state of North Carolina, Under Armour will be releasing a special version of the Curry 6 inspired by a prank that took place on Curry’s 21st birthday.

“We went to a little Japanese steakhouse to celebrate, and decisions were made to jump in the koi fish pond at the restaurant. I was the decoy distracting the hostess while Steve [Rossiter] jumped in and tried to grab one of the fish,” Steph says, per Under Armour. However, security cameras caught it all, and the footage eventually made its way to Davidson College men’s basketball head coach Bob McKillop a week later.

“We were in the gym running sprints for a good two hours,” said Stephen. “And then we had to go back to the steakhouse and stay at the front door for four hours as greeters!”

Inspired by those events, the Curry 6 “Coy Fish” colorway, homophone intended, is a nod to the vibrant beauty of the koi fish, featuring a bright yellow fully knit upper, a full-length HOVR midsole and a water-like clear outsole.

Release Date: February 15

Retail Price: $110

 

Paul George will be lacing up a multi-color version of the Nike PG3 when he takes the court for Team Giannis in the All-Star Game this Sunday, but fans can cop the kicks starting today, February 15. The kicks serve as a nod to George’s love for fishing and the outdoors, as well as Nike’s ACG line.

Per Nike:

“PG knows it’s one thing to brave the elements, but it’s another thing to embrace them. In the game’s biggest moments, PG carries the belief that no matter the environment or intensity, All Conditions means all conditions. Designed to go further and push beyond limits, the PG 3 “All-Star” combines PG’s love for fishing and the outdoors with the performance innovation, vibrant heritage, and design mantra of the Nike ACG line.”


 

Nike Zoom Kobe IV Protro “Draft Day”

Release Date: February 15

Nike’s Kobe Protro series, which began with a retooled version of the Nike Kobe 1, is set to continue in February with the release of the Nike Kobe IV Protro.

The Nike Kobe IV will reportedly return on February 15 in a “White/Orion Blue-Varsity Purple” colorway, which is the same color code as the Charlotte Hornets-inspired “Draft Day” rendition that debuted in 2009.

Release Date: February 16

LA-based streetwear label ROKIT has partnered up with Nike for a crazy colorway of the Kyrie 5 which will launch this Saturday, February 16.

Air Jordan 1 “Turbo Green”

 

 

Release Date: February 15

Retail Price: $160

 

Like many of the other Air Jordans releasing in February, this “Turbo Green” Air Jordan 1 colorway serves as a nod to Charlotte, North Carolina – specifically the classic Charlotte Hornets team colors.

The weathered Air Jordan 1 is highlighted by its suede “Turbo Green” overlays that sit atop the white leather upper, as well as the purple and gold detailing on the tongue’s Nike Air branding.


 

Jordan Why Not Zer0.2 “All-Star”

Release Date: February 17

Retail Price: $125

 

Russell Westbrook’s All-Star kicks come in an electric colorway, a perfect match for his explosive style of play, which will surely stand out amongst even the wildest All-Star sneakers.

The Why Not Zer0.2 “All-Star” colorway features a little bit of everything, from a green camo upper and elephant print detailing to a vibrant array of accents highlighted by volt laces along with splashes of infrared and hyper turquoise throughout.

The kicks, priced at $125, will launch at 10 am ET on Sunday, February 17, the same day as the 2019 NBA All-Star Game.


Nike Adapt BB

Release Date: February 17

Retail Price: $350

 

According to Nike, when a player steps into the Nike Adapt BB, the brand’s first laceless performance basketball sneaker, a custom motor and gear train senses the tension needed by the foot and adjusts accordingly to keep the foot snug.

The tensile strength of the underfoot lacing is able to pull 32 pounds of force (roughly equal to that of a standard parachute cord) to secure the foot throughout a range of movement. The fit settings of the Nike Adapt BB can be altered by manual touch or by using the Nike Adapt app on a smartphone.

 


Nike LeBron 16 “Watch The Throne”

 

Release Date: February 17

Retail Price: N/A

 

A limited-edition “Watch The Throne” LeBron 16 is reportedly set to drop during the All-Star Game this Sunday. The kicks, featuring a black knit upper with a floral print and gold detailing, are inspired by the rare LeBron 9 PE bearing the same name.

The release is somewhat of a mystery, as Nike still has not announced official details, but you’ll definitely want to be alert for a surprise drop when Team LeBron takes the floor against Team Giannis at 8 pm ET on Sunday.


Air Jordan 6 “Black/Infrared”

 

Release Date: February 16

Retail Price: $200

 

The iconic “Black Infrared” Air Jordan 6 that Michael Jordan wore during his first NBA title run will be returning to retailers on February 16 as part of Nike’s annual All-Star game collection.

The shoes will come in OG form, featuring the familiar black nubuck upper, infrared detailing, full-length Max Air unit in the sole, visible Air bubble in the heel and “Nike Air” logo on the heel. Additionally, they’ll be available for the whole fam with men’s sizes retailing for $200.
